Bring Back the Words: Week 3 Prompt 1

I’m participating in Ginger‘s Bring Back the Words (BBTW) link-up!

I am a little late to the game on Ginger's BBTW challenge but I think it will be good for me to give me something to write about and a deadline to get the post up.


Prompt 1: What is your worst dating story?

Oh, there are many bad dating stories in my past but I think the most appropriate thing to mention here would be how my anxiety would effect my dating in high school and college.  It wasn't until I was an adult that I understood what caused all my issues.  You see when I was younger, I would get so excited about something that it would make me nervous and would cause me to get sick.  I pretty much didn't go on a date in high school or college that didn't require me to run to the bathroom or else I'd get sick in front of my date.  Somewhere around my junior year in college, I finally got over this problem but man, was it miserable while it lasted.  I remember one date my sophomore year with this really hot guy from the military school and having to beg him to pull over on our drive back from dinner so I could throw up.  How embarrassing!  Yet he asked me out again and we dated for a couple of months before he went home for Christmas and decided to get back together with his ex-girlfriend and then became best friends with my ex-boyfriend after returning to school.  I glad I grew out of the issue because I ended up dating a lot more in my adult life than I had planned or hoped to.  Divorcing at 30 will do that to you.

I don't think you've ever mentioned that issue to me. Crazy! I'm so glad it all worked out in the end though. :)

Well, it was pretty embarrassing at the time so I didn't really tell anyone. I think I just grew out of it.

Oh you poor thing! As if dating isn't nerve wracking enough! I'm glad you got over it, but man that had to suck!
